Beauty: Flawless Skincare Tips from Ambi

The Ultimate Under-$10 Beauty Guide

Beauty: Ulta Nail Polish

So for whatever reason, I mosied over to ULTA which is a sizable beauty retailer that sales beauty, skin, and hair products along with a hosts of accessories for men and women. Although ULTA carries probably 100s of brands, they had their own products on sale and if you follow my blog, you know I'm addicted to NAIL POLISH! Small bottles were two for $4 and larger ones were buy one FREE. I have to say it was refreshing to purchase nail polish for that price, have it brush on smoothly, display this type of shine, and not chip after 24hrs (e.g. ESSIE NAIL POLISH). This is my first time using this and I give it two thumbs up! I brought hot pink and yellow nail polishes with two lip glosses for $10 bucks...cant beat that! 

So, I approve of you to spend your hard earned cash on worthless beauty products from ULTA!!! Side note: If there is one in Mississippi, I'm pretty sure there should be one near you; nonetheless, below is the link:

For Men: 21Men

I may be late on this; nonetheless, I'm still telling you. Forever 21 has its brother store 21Men with clothes that are fashionable yet, cheap as dirt (if dirt is infact cheap). I'm not sure if they have an actual store or if it's just online but that's for you to figure out...i mean...I got you this far. Below is a few of my favorites and the link.

Herringbone High Top Sneakers$17.90

Striped V-neck Tee

F8183 Sunglasses $5.90

Below, is the link:


It's a new day women of color! I fully support color wearing color (does that sound right?), lol.

NOT: Ebates

Last night, I saw a commercial about Ebates which is an online site you can shop at and receive cash back on your online purchases. Since I'm always looking for ways to cut costs, I thought I'd sign up today. However, being the person I am...I did a little research. Some things I found out include:

  • problems getting credit back
  • thinking one is purchasing something for a discount and or credit
  • lack of customer service solving the above issues
So, there you have it. I don't need additional issues added to my life nor my pockets! Sign up at your own risk...

Beauty: Product Review of Essie's Coat Azure

While at Walmart with the roomie last week, we decided to browse through the makeup section. I think we all know by now that Essie is everywhere and not just in high-end make-up retailers or salons anymore. Although, I was there to pick up a specific color, I could not keep my eyes off this gorgeous color. Could it be so...a color I don't have??? Any who, the price of $7.75 plus taxes was so worth it (for an addict like me) although I was skeptical because I've had my experience with expensive nail polish that doesn't last a day without chipping.

So, I proceeded to polish my base color, two coats of this "Coat Azure" and just like with OPI, the polish chipped the next day. This is my first time trying Essie and I give it a big fat F! I don't wash dishes or my hands excessively so there is no excuse! If you have better experience or tips, let me know!    

Make-up: Hard Candy

With this economy and no chances of me possibly getting a raise, I decided to do some research for me and all the women who have to decide between buying a MAC lip gloss or paying the water bill…just kidding, lol. Rather you admit it to yourself or not, you’ve browsed down the make-up aisle in Walmart and possibly passed the vibrant and exciting Hard Candy display. Hard Candy sales fun make-up that adds umph to your face, eyes, lips, body and of course…my favorite, NAILS! Below are a few of my favorites at great prices!!!
Glow All the Way - Skin Luminizer $8 Online

Glamoflauge - Heavy Duty Concealer $6 Online
Hide & Glow Cheek - Cheek Tint Duos $6 Online
These prices are online prices; therofore, they may be cheaper in the store. Below, is the Hard Candy link:

Why Women Need Men

Hello my good people, sorry I've been MIA. One of the reasons I've been super busy is because I moved this past weekend. Because I am a scrawny woman (and because I'm not picking up anything heavy), I had to recruit a few guys. To make a long story short, it got me thinking about why women need a man around. Below, is a list:
  1. To pump gas (especially during adverse weather)
  2. To wash my car, put air in my tires, um...and any other car issue
  3. To lift heavy things
  4. To assemble things
OK, so there you have it. My list of the reasons why we (or me at least) need men. Comment below :)

List updated via Sharon and her granmother:

  5.   My granny said she only needs a man to bring in firewood and take out the trash...LOL!!!
